We'd have trouble with Fragile onwards, only PHM, Broken and TDS have had every single track played live (With Teeth almost counts)

And actually, couldn't do Purest Feeling either, as there's no recording of the title track, if it was ever played

yes, i was aware of this, my post was just more a comment on how awesome it would be to the main albums (PHM, TDS, TF, YZ, HM) with an official live release.
alot of us enjoy the live versions of so many of these tracks and yeah, mostly it was a wishful thinking comment from me.

I had a dream last night that I walked out of the record store with reissues of With teeth, YZ, The Slip, and YZR.

A dude can dream. I think the last time I saw a copy of YZR on vinyl it was around $70-80. Ehhh...

i sold my original pressing (which was unplayed) a couple years ago to someone on here (can't remember who) because i never really got into the album. literally a week after i sold it, i listened to it (digitally) and realized i liked it more than i thought. no regerts, right? :/ needless to say i'm glad it's getting the DE treatment.

Wait, YZR IS getting a DE release?? I thought my brain made that part up.

I was kinda the same way, though! Sans owning a vinyl copy. It took a long time for that album to warm up to me, but now even the "Me, I'm Not" remix occasionally gets some play. I don't think there's a remix on there that I just DON'T like.

i had one, too. and i paid like ten bucks for it brand new at a tiny record shop in boise in 1997. but i played the shit out of it on this giant 1970's tv/record player/8-track/radio behemoth. it was the size of a tank, but sounded fucking awesome. i think i sold it for a dime bag, can't remember.

i sold my entire collection in one giant ebay sale for pennies on the dollar about ten years ago when i was buying a house. i needed to simplify (quickly) and every penny counted, but i got screwed. every halo up to that point, including several duplicates (two of all three witt singles, among MANY). tour booklets, vhs bootlegs (broken, an early video collection, a very early show in dallas), phm/broken/tds/tf/MULTIPLE cassette singles, several magazines ... ugh, just thinking about this makes me sick. the guy who won the auction was like "hey, i can tell you are a big fan and i plan on flipping things individually and will pay it forward with you."

of course i never heard from him. you on here somewhere, dude? :/

"it's just stuff," i said to myself. sigh.

I bought that one and the "Where The Fuck Were You?" tour shirt at the UIC Pavilion show. Ended up leaving the white one underneath my seat (section 108, still remember).

I've never sold anything NIN-related, but I have given stuff away. I hope to never have to sell, to be honest.

Never sold anything, but some of the items in my collection I wish I had kept in better condition. Most of the CDs I own (including some rare bootlegs/imports) I kept in a big CD wallet and they got scratched up, ink worn off, disc rot, etc. A (very clumsy) friend of mine stepped on the case for Closure when it was sitting on the floor by the TV without the tapes inside of it, so that got a little ripped. I have a German import of The Fragile vinyl (with Nothing logos on the LP sleeves) that has never been played, but has some shelf wear even though it's been in a box the entire time I've owned it.

I watched an onstage vid of "I'm Afraid of Americans" from Toronto 2009 today. 4 piece band. Sounded pretty f'n good to me. Said NIN opened for Jane's Addiction that show. What a mismatch that had to be! Always found Jane's to be extremely overrated, in particular Perry Farrell. I would've left after NIN. The only time I saw Jane's when they were like good was Lollapalooza 1 (we didn't get NIN here). Think the level of "attitude adjustment" had something to do with that. Every other time I've seen them they've been mediocre to terrible. Another time Pixies circa Doolittle (Primus 3rd bill) utterly destroyed Jane's. It wasn't even close. I got sidetracked. Even in 2009, WTF were promoters thinking not having NIN headline over Jane's? Ilan Rubin is totally mighty in this clip. He's become 1 of my favorite drummers & Robin is awesome, too.

When I went to Jones Beach stop of the NINJA tour, I was with several people and we all left after NIN finished before Janes Addiction came on. We were there for NIN.

Trent had NIN "open" for Jane's on that tour strictly out of respect for the band, as he is a huge fan. No other reason. Everyone knew who the real headliner was, and who the majority of fans were there to see.

I stayed and watch Jane's Addiction, they were great but in hindsight NIN was fucking awesome, the set-lists NIN did during the NINJA tour were great they were pulling out songs I never thought they would play. I wish (in future tours) that Trent would do more unexpected shows like the NINJA tour, with unpredictable set-lists.

Went to the London, UK show and Jane's Addiction played before NIN. Not being a fan of the band, it was incredibly tedious to have to stand through their set. More than that, it was unmemorable. I can recall most gigs I've been to, but not that one. The only thing that does come to mind was how bored I was. Hopefully it never happens again.

Also the NINJA acronym is embarrassing.

I enjoyed the show I went to in Atlanta though I'm baffled into what Perry was using for his vocals though I was happy to see the original line-up. NIN was better of course.

Jane's Addiction from 1986-1991 is the band that I want to remember. What they've become since Strays is a totally different band.

I think that was the last time I went to that venue. I don't go to a lot of shows. I've seen NIN twice at the Lakewood Amphitheater in 2006 and 2009 plus Pearl Jam in 2003, the Cure in 2000, and some of Lollapalooza '95. I never had problems with that but it's just gone through so many changes in name and such. It's terrible.

Iíve seen tons of shows there. Nine inch nails at least 5 or 6 times. I donít know where the fuck up occurred that day. 🤷♀️ it was bad but it was fine in the end.

I did get to go to the 99x backstage nin performance at Lakewood in 2006 which remains one of the coolest things to happen to me. It was me and about 11 people. They took us in a room and we sat on the floor. Trent sat at table and peter Murphy had a mic. It was broadcasted live in the radio. My friends were listening. ets was listening. Trent was really nice to me. I almost passed out. Perhaps my favorite nin memory ever. ❤️

Similar situation here. My peak Jane's fandom was a while after yours, but at some point I lost most of my interest almost overnight, like a lightswitch was flipped. Ritual De Lo Habitual was my very favourite album a few years ago, but now the hooks just don't work like they used to. Very strange.

Didn’t a vast majority of pre-sale fans get screwed out of seeing the first few NIN songs due to the fuck up? Correct me if I’m wrong with that. I think Trent went on social media in a future attempt to “make things right” but never followed up on it.

He followed up. He was true to his word. It was really cool. People love to think heís an asshole but heís has a good heart and connects with so many fans. Thereís tons of experiences weíve heard about but I bet he does way more for his fans than weíll ever know.

Oh, god- I never meant that! Trent definitely is one of the better musicians that connects to his fans. I was more active on the NIN dot com forum at the time and months went by without him following up on his word about “making the situation right” IIRC (ie: people not happy about it or a response from the NIN camp). As far as I recall he just let the situation slide by. What did happen as far as a follow up with that Atlanta fiasco?...

I didnít think you meant that. I feel like, in general, his angry rocker persona of the past and his public feuds might shape the idea for casual or non fans that heís callous and uncaring. Most fans know heís a softee.

They told us Atlanta kids not to post about it online and as far as I know, no one has. I donít know why. But I will tell you they went out of their way. There was no obligation to do that. He made it happen. I will never forget.

And All That Could Have Been is an extremely apt title for the live album, as it could have been so much better. No Somewhat Damaged, Even Deeper, The Way Out is Through, to name a couple of reasons.

The Downward Spiral live is a beast of a song. (Insofar as I can know that from youtube videos)

It really sucks that it wasn't included with the proshot footage on Closure. They used all the songs around it from the show (Eraser/Hurt/Wish) but cut the end of Hurt right as TDS is starting. Bizarre decision, considering it's the focal point of the show with the scrim filling with blood and dropping – I assume someone wasn't happy with the footage they got.

I can take it
Sideways
Sometimes
Some things
Feel like
I'm on the other side
Waves
Of every feeling ever felt
…screaming

2
Hold it close
(So) I can taste it

3
I've watched this scene a thousand times
And in my head
This is how it all begins
Yes, I am becoming
And this is how it all begins
What did you expect?
This is not an exit
This has begun

4
I can almost see
The blackest eyes
The new flesh
A new disguise
…Welcoming…

Please

5
Give it to me
I can take it
Give it to me

I can take it


I've become [alive]

When the track titles came out for Hesitation Marks, I remember thinking Various Methods of Escape would be an instrumental and hoping that it wouldn't be, because as much as I love his instrumental work, we have been lucky enough to be spoiled with a lot of that from his and Atticus's film scores. So when I first heard the track I was pleasantly surprised, but as time as gone on, I have to say it is my least favorite track from Hesitation Marks and one of my least favorite Nine Inch Nails songs. It's not that it's bad, I don't mind the lyrics or the mid-song breakdown, but sonically it just feels so limp and predictable and devoid of a really engaging melody. Hesitation Marks is the most eclectic Nine Inch Nails release for me because it fluctuates between genuinely terrific tracks - Copy Of A, All Time Low, Running (which really hits the 'stripped down but hypnotizing' vibe Trent seemed to be shooting for in the album), In Two (!!!) - and ones that feel uncharacteristically perfunctory, but while I find that Everything, Satellite, and even Find My Way fit into the latter category, there is no question that the number one offender is Various Methods of Escape. It was also the worst possible choice from the album to play on Jimmy Kimmel, one that was basically guaranteed to leave no impression and not generate any kind of interest outside the fanbase. EDIT: Not entirely true, on second thought Everything probably would have been a worse choice.

I wish they had played Sunspots live during Tension, when the Lisa and Sharlotte were still in the lineup. Don't get me wrong, I would take a live version of this song with ANY format of the band, but if the chief factor in it not being performed is really concern over the wear on Trent's voice, this would have been the perfect time to bust it out and it would have sounded amazing. Hell, the only other live no-show from With Teeth at that time, All the Love in the World, made its premiere on that tour!

Demon Seed doesn't get nearly enough love. The last three tracks of The Slip are so palpably linked and really swell into a fantastic conclusion. Just how tight that album is for something made on such a compressed timeline will never stop impressing the hell out of me.

Me, I'm Not needs to get back on setlists for so many reasons but mostly because I've never seen it live.

Am wondering why heroin use by Trent Reznor is suggested? The interviews I have seen: Trent says he had an alcohol problem.

The Guardian - The Nine Lives of Trent Reznor (https://www.theguardian.com/music/2013/aug/08/the-nine-lives-of-trent-reznor)

ninwiki - 2000/07/01 London, UK (http://www.nin.wiki/2000/07/01_London,_UK)

The second link you posted seems to be apologising for their drummer. The first from the Guardian is supposedly written in 2013 but has a photo from 2017, and no "last updated" date. The Guardian is also full of BS, there are NO RECORDS of Trent Reznor ever taking drugs, let alone overdosing.

I think this is one of the interviews where it is discussed:

https://youtu.be/IiFvoyujVv8

Anyway, thank you for taking the time to respond and point me to where the gossip is coming from. I know the real reason for Trent's time off, although it isn't until 2002 (after NIN's acooustic gig), that Trent takes a year and a half off work.

If you would like more info, you can message me. :)

Your passive-aggressiveness borders on obscene. I'm sorry you don't like the fact that Trent Reznor may have used heroin in his life. It's been "gossip" for years.

The intention of your question is clear from your response. If you had bothered to read the ninwiki link, it talks about Trent and drug overdose (oh no). So does that evil fake Guardian link. All just gossip, I know.

And that picture you say is from 2017 was taken in his Los Angeles home studio.

I thought Reznor himself said his addiction was cocaine, not heroin. Iím not sure when and where he said it tho.


ETA: I think it gets reported as heroin because he has so many songs that mention needles.

Obviously you did not read the second half of my post.

Trent has chin length-shoulder length hair until November 2016 (where he cuts it short and dyes it bleach blond for a film role), so obviously the photo from 2013 is FAKE.

Not sure why you are being antagonistic instead of friendly? This is supposed to be a NIN Fan Forum where people are NICE TO EACH OTHER.

Reznorís hair has been predominantly short since 2007. I havenít seen a single photo of him with chin length hair since the with teeth era.

Right now is the longest itís been in years.

No, YOU said the picture is from 2017 and claimed that the Guardian lied about publishing their story in 2013 based on the fact that the photo was taken - again, in your own words - in 2017. I merely pointed out that you were objectively wrong by citing an incidence of the photo being published in 2012. Trent's hair hasn't been chin-length since about the mid-2005s if I recall correctly (I saw them for the first time in 2006 and it was a buzz cut).

I say this with all sincerity, for the second time: if you're not trolling, please get help. I have no reason to dislike you. But your claims are time and again outrageous and often objectively false. If you really believe the things you're saying, then I'm worried about your well-being.

Can't wait until the new EP and tour. Really depressed over the Manson show in Huntington Thursday night. Been looking forward to it for over 4 months and then was treated to a total shit show! Trent would never pull that shit...at least not nowadays...Been debating with people on the Manson Reddit, but most of them just defend him blindly and enable him...ive always been a big fan, but after the disaster on Thursday, I'm not sure if I continue being a fan of someone who acts like that with zero apology, explanation or remorse! All I know, is I'm eagerly waiting for some good news from Trent!

Sadly though, the last really good whole album was 1981 (Tattoo You). & that was sort of leftovers from the Emotional Rescue sessions for the most part. There have been good songs here & there since then but not many. Conversely, I think the 2 EPs last year (especially Add Violence) stand up with the rest of the NIN catalog. We won't even get into the soundtrack stuff. Some of that is absolutely stunning. 35 years is a pretty long time to wait for a good record. I liked some of Bridges to Babylon but there was a lot of filler. Remember, I was hard core Stones fan. I conned my parents into letting me drive to Boulder from Seattle to see the Some Girls tour when I was in high school. I'm just disappointed in the current Stones thing. I heard a tape from the first weekend of Desert Trip that was shockingly bad. The main problem I think is Mick has taken over & its all about the benjamins now. From Let It Bleed through Exile, nobody could touch the Stones. That's a pretty good run & they had a few more flashes. They should just retire now. The advantage that Trent has is NIN is Trent (& Atticus now). Everybody else can be replaced with no trauma for him. It's a singular vision with no one else competing to run things. Interesting tidbit: for me the Stones decline really began in earnest when it was decided to bring in back up singers. The last tour that Keith did the primary backup vocals was 1982 Europe. It changed the sound & dynamics a lot. The more extra musicians they added, the more it became the Rolling Stones Revue. Currently, Chuck Leavell is running the live band musically. He's a fine musician but totally wrong for them. Brought that jam band ethos into it & it's not pretty. As Mick once famously said "too many notes man".

I wonder if while Trent was composing part of The Fragile if he may have been inspired by Stanley Kubrickís The Shining. Some of the instrumentation really fits in with that film, and if you listen to ďThe New Flesh,Ē that feels absolutely in the same headspace. Iíve watched the film so many times, and while listening to its outstandingly eerie score, it sounds like something that Trent might compose.

Sometimes a song plays in me head, and I realize it is somewhat related to what is happening around me or to me at the moment. Or I suddenly realize some WORDS are changed so it fits my current state. Words! And, I am no that good in english language, nor do I think I understand the songs that good to do this consciously by decision. It's like there was someone else in me having fun, like "hey, let's play him THIS SONG and see if he realizes why". :-) Don't worry, I'm OK and sober, it's just strange realization when this happens and I'm like "wait, where is THIS coming from...??" This thread because it happens with NIN mostly, maybe I feel NIN more than other music?

People dragging the Stones in this thread... what is your deal? Totally disagree with chuckrh about their last 35 years sucking. Yeah they have shaky moments, but that's a feature, not a bug — I had tickets for the cancelled Vegas arena show and it had nothing to do with the corporate gig (they played two Desert Trip shows where Jagger blew out his voice with laryngitis and then a second arena show afterwards when he got better, which I couldn't stay for — probably lost more in sunk costs cancelling than they did playing the private date).

Reznor has every musical influence under the sun. He just grew up in a time when the Stones were already one of the biggest bands ever so I doubt he likes them much, except as a point of comparison which no band could ever dream to live up to — think about what it would mean for the same handful of guys playing over 2000 shows in countless countries (many of which NIN has never even considered visiting) for enormous crowds decade after decade. It's their genius songwriting combined with stagecraft that allowed all of that to happen. Along with incredible work ethic and commitment to the art — not just dollar signs. Although it is very expensive being a fan. Can't we agree to put a pin in that? NIN stuff isn't cheap either.

I've seen the Stones over 20 times going back to 1978. A little comparison: premium seat (so called) for Stones MGM Grand 2012: $750. Incredible seat NIN Hard Rock 2017 = $100. Last great record of original material: Stones = 1981, NIN=2017. I could go on. Granted the Stones have more years than NIN. The Stones legacy is great but for me they are tarnishing it now. Streets of Love, bleh! We'll just agree to disagree. BTW, I have actually met Keith & Bobby Keyes (RIP, another huge loss for the Stones sound). Both were really nice.

very cool. i saw several shows on bigger bang & licks tours, including @ the joint before they remodeled it on licks. mgm the next night (sticky fingers night) was 1 of the best shows i've seen. i did see 1 great 1 on bigger bang. motley crue opened in seattle & portland & evidently ronnie had a little too much fun preshow in seattle. to the point where he couldn't really play. the solo on tumbling dice sounded like sonic youth & not in a good way. you could tell mick was pissed off. after that, he got turned way down & keith did all the heavy lifting with blondie chaplin helping out. keith was unreal good that night. i think the genesis of my ennui is i was so disappointed in 2012. it was such a mediocre show & i spent big bucks on it. they had bloody mick taylor & only let him play on midnight rambler (highlight of the show). then special guest katy perry. bleh. bb king was in town & it would've been special if they had him in that role. opportunity lost. anyway, i'll always love the stones. maybe they'll put out 1 more great record. that would change things for me. i guess at this point in my life, NIN is just much more relevant in numerous ways. i like how trent keeps challenging his fans. there's a vid up on youtube of the whole vegas show in october. it was just so mighty. i was sitting front row balcony (i'm disabled so can't do the floor & i had pneumonia) & NIN just destroyed me. my only gripe would be i wanted more! i've got fairly diverse tastes & was in the music biz for 25+ years (until it went away), so have seen & heard a lot. some current & long time faves are the cure, drive-by truckers, wilco, flaming lips & neil finn. have enjoyed the dialog with you.

Those blaring cathedral like brass horns during the chorus are the coolest thing ever put on a record.

those little rapid fire synth lines that start right when the first verse kicks in do it for me.

Plus I always heard what you're describing more as aggressive, distorted, jarring keyboard sounds...not brass horns. Interesting.

Mention of NIN in a look back to Madonna's Ray of Light album

I've never really been a Madonna fan, but she does have a few songs I like and the song Frozen was one of them.

The live version of Capital G from the 2007 shows is so good and I hate that they never did it after that — its chorus doesn’t work as well in studio but has that big, sweeping sense to it that lends itself to shows really well.

Also How Long will forever be worse than any NIN song to me save for Deep. Deep is terrible and this bizarre prequel-apologist attitude that’s become popular in recent years of it being a good song with a bad video is just wrong. It’s the closest Trent ever got to becoming the nu metal garbage he complained so much about and it’s not good.

How Long? is great, if a little obvious in its intent. It also has one of the best music videos for a Trent-produced song in my opinion. Still can't understand the hate for Deep, and I don't say that as some sort of apologist. I genuinely dig that track. When that baseline kicks in, I'm sold. Having been exposed to enough nu-metal to last me a lifetime, I don't really hear the comparison in Deep, but maybe that's just me.

I do not like How Long? either. As for Deep, it sounds like it could be a Fragile track. I really don't get the hate for it as it sounds like your standard NIN affair. No worse than Less Than or Came Back Haunted or Discipline or Only or any of the radio pop rock Trent does. Actually Deep is harder than those tracks. I say Discipline is the worst NIN track. I rather hear How Long? and I don’t even like that track. Discipline is just cringeworthy.

With Teeth for me. It basically knocked NIN out of a favorite band status for me, and I went from anticipating his work like a crazed person to just kind of checking in. I really liked how otherworldly and slightly "off" a lot of The Fragile is, and I still have almost never come across an album that sounds at all like TDS (elements of some of Coil's work comes close). So the more standard, understandable rock music that comprises a lot of WT was a huge bummer for me at the time. I have come around on it, and I appreciate it for what it is, though it's still not a fave.

I always loved "All The Love...," (an all-time favorite NIN track; it used to irk me that it's followed by something as ordinary as "You Know What..."), "Right Where It Belongs," and thought "The Line Begins..." was interesting, and those are still my favorites.

I donít like Where Is Everybody. Itís ... fine, but not at all what I like about NIN, and Starfuckers is and will always be out of place and both contribute heavily to Right feeling inferior to Left and part of why I will never consider it superior to TDS as a complete album. Down In It works because itís the first album so it gets a bit more of a pass for the silliness of it and the retro sound boosts it greatly. The lyrics to Deep are terrible and the idea that it could fit next to songs like La Mer and Iím Looking Forward To Joining You Finally makes me feel like the reasons I like The Fragile arenít why other people like The Fragile. It feels like a demo with placeholder lyrics to me that never got refined.

Purest Feeling is excellent for 80s synthpop. Maybe Just Once is also solid as hell for the era itís a product of, and neither of those songs feel fair since they were only ever in demo stages and had no final studio versions.

Also wow I should be in the controversial opinion thread at this point.

Yeah this is big-time Personal Opinions Hour drift, fellas. Here's a more Random Thought:

I really want Atticus to write a big essay to accompany the vinyl release of Still. Those sessions are from right before he started working with TR on the still-unfinished 12 Rounds record, so his impressions of Nothing Studios in those days and reflections on hearing the record retrospectively as an obvious starting point for the tone of their subsequent soundtrack work together would be, well, awesome.

If we count in the production value as well, then it is indeed not good. I really hate any next level argument about shitty productions, where it boils down to "duh, it was meant to sound like that silly!" I still can't fucking hear shit! But if the vocals were mixed normally, LITS would be amazing; I still like it, but it's near impossible to listen to during my daily commute, because the quietness makes the listening experience miserable.

This is why I am so glad for the Definitive Broken edition: they fixed the volume issues.

On another note, I don't get the Starfuckers, THTF, Discipline, CBH, Less Than, etc. hate. They are fun and mostly one-off songs on their respective records.

I don't have the knowledge.

Ac1dfreak used to make extremely good quality stuff from (mostly live) NIN songs, but that's been a while. Heard some fan fixes of other bands' songs, and honestly, they were all worse than the original, so I'm not a big believer in fixing stuff ourselves.

LITS may be not that hard, you just have to up the vocals, but what do you with Less Than for example? The production of that song is so strange, and in a bad way.

It won't come as a shocker, but I listened to every other slow songs from NIN, and I never once had this problem with those tracks. AATCHB and ILFTMYF could be mentioned, but both of those songs are building up to something, so the quiet parts are not annoying. In LITS? Trent just whispers through the entire song. If that's good mix for you, then I am happy that every other slow tempo NIN songs were mixed in a different way.

I just hope 100 years from now The Slip will be regarded as the best NIN production of all time, and we will have come full circle with how literature is being taught in schools.

This is what I opened with: I am aware that they deliberately mixed it in a shitty way, and that it wasn't a mistake. But the older The Slip gets, the more annoying this rising sentiment will become, that the production of TS can'T be criticized, because everything that sounds funky is deliberately bad. Making a record hastily should not grant protection for the obvious flaws such a recording method produces.

I don't care about what the intention was, but to me the vocals are a little quiet on LITS. It is fine for some occasions, like when I listen to it alone or on headphones for example but it seems a bit mumbly if there is anybody else there at the time and we are having a conversation. I was driving the kids to school the other morning and I had The Slip on in the car and the only time I had to turn it up was for LITS, at which point the instrumentation (piano) seemed overpowering while the vocals were just loud enough to be clear.

So while writing this it struck me... maybe the intention is for it to be best enjoyed alone.. I don't know but the vocals are certainly low in the mix, intentional or not. I have to think that with the experience of TR it must be intentional even if I don't really understand the intention.

Edit: Just wanted to say Intention one more time

You get up in arms because an awfully quiet song was called awfully quiet. I'll try to meet you guys halfway then: the production is good, but the decision to tune the volume so, so, SO down on LITS was shitty and pointless. It is not enjoyable to listen to during a daily commute*, and what's worse, the song wouldn't lose any value if it would have a proper volume range.

There is no need to be revisionist and try to imply that everything on TS sounds how it sounds for a reason, when even Trent himself admitted that he is not so sure about that record.

As an experiment, I can see how putting an under tuned track on a raw and loud material like TS can be tempting. It sounds very artistic on the drawing board, but the final version was more annoying than awe-inspiring. Which is a pity, because LITS might be one of the most underrated songs in the catalog, but the circumstances turned it into a raw gem, which can only be seen shining when Trent performs it live. But he's not performing it live, because it's not called Hurt. A pity.

*And for the love of God, @BRoswell (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=219), don't strawman me with this. Whenever I try to not write a wall of text, my fear of not explaining everything in 5 extra sentences just comes true. LITS is not quiet because it's quiet on the street; it's extremely quiet on its own, which is annoying on its own. Not being able to bring it to myself to my commute is just another personal annoyance of mine on top of that.

Sorry, but your argument against how it's mixed basically holds no water, especially when you bring up listening to it in a car. Between road and engine noise, plus various other sounds you encounter while driving, of course it's going to sound too quiet. Using the fact that the album was recorded quickly doesn't support the fact that listening to a quiet song in a noisy environment and then saying that it sounds too quiet to you is really, really dumb.

If you think it's too quiet, so be it, but to say that it's some sort of error in the mix is just wrong. Honestly, I've rarely even heard of anyone else complaining about how it sounds, and the people who did talk about it were idiotic fans who skip it because they only want the songs that "RAWK HAAARD!!!".

I also think that basing a quiet song mix's quality around how it sounds in a noisy enviroment is a bit unjustified. "If it sounds good in the car, it's good" is a recurring trope among sound engineers, but I thought it was obvious not every song is meant to be heard that way, and LITS is of course supposed to be REALLY quiet. There are many other wonderful masterpieces that are hardly audible at the noisiest places.

I've just realised that the sample of the beginning of Closer (that can be noticed specially in the live versions) is also playing during the quiet part in the middle of Mr Self Destruct (it can be heard specially just before the heavy parte comes back).
Hate to differ with you, but it isn't. Someone recently determined that the loop in "Closer" was a sped-up sample lifted from a Roxy Music song (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/threads/4627-i-figured-out-that-backwards-music-in-Closer), and the faint echoey things going round and round in the middle of "Mr. Self Destruct" are just treated guitars. Check out the 5.1 surround mix (or various instrumental versions on YouTube like this one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWE_4bK0Mbc))... you can hear them more clearly.

There are many other wonderful masterpieces that are hardly audible at the noisiest places.

Case in point:

Almost entire first minute of "And All That Could Have Been"

The middle section of title track "With_Teeth"

The middle section of "Various Methods Of Escape"

The middle section/bridge section of "In Two", its opening also counts.

Pinion's beginning can be heard very hardly in noisy places.

Pretty much entirety of "Another Version Of The Truth" especially towards its end.

A lot of "Find My Way" falls into this.

As does "While I'm Still Here"

Any idea how you miss out with "This Isn't The Place" in crowded places? Albeit it gets louder as it goes on.


"The Way Out Is Through" mostly until its end



Lesson learned? NIN music wasn't made in made to be listened to "on-the-go" or whatever. Lighs In The Sky indeed isn't a good "radio" or "headphone in public" song, but a lot of NIN songs aren't, NIN albums were always at their best when they are paid full attention to, preferably at peace at one's home.

Slightly unrelated - This makes me think of Trent's push for vinyl records as a preferred method of listening to music (not just his), but also makes me think of how ridiculous it is to have a tiny, portable device that you put on your records to play them on-the-go. You aren't SUPPOSED to take your records to the park with you. You aren't SUPPOSED to just bring records to a house party. Would you bring your records on the train for your daily commute? No. Because that's dumb. They're meant to be played on a turntable in an appropriate setting. Going to a party with a record-spinning DJ? Sure. Taking records to a buddy's place to listen together? Rad. But if you want on-the-go, then maybe you should listen to something else.

Today that's not the case, and I believe that's what's wrong with the industry. So many artists are putting out albums with two or three radio friendly singles and then phoning the rest in because people aren't buying the whole album, they're sampling 30 seconds on iTunes and buying (read: renting a license for) the two or three songs with the most little bars next to them. The band sees this and says, "well, if people only give a shit about two or three songs which they're just going to toss on a playlist, we should just make two or three 'good' songs per album", and so on and so forth until every album is 75% filler.
And, while I will sit down with a record and listen to it as intended, I do run around with 18,000+ songs on my iPhone, but I have excellent, noise-cancelling headphones so I can experience the music as opposed to just using it to pass the time on my commute or block out bible shouting maniacs on the subway.
When it comes down to it, everything is a personal choice and while I don't really think there's a "right" and "wrong" way to experience music, I do believe there's an "intended" and "unintended" way to experience music.

I tend to listen to albums I enjoy more so than just single tracks. If an album has just has 1 or 2 good songs on it, there's a very good chance that even if I love those 1 or 2 songs, I won't be listening to them anywhere near as much compared to an album that is full of songs I love. Silly for people blaming digital music as the reason some people don't buy or listen to albums anymore like kids didn't borrow friends' records to make mixtapes or record songs off the radio back in the day. It's the same shit that's always been happening. It is nothing new. Artists don't have to cater to the half hearted listener.

I have never chose to listen to the radio ever in my life. So I have never been a singles playlist type of person. I have only listened to the radio if I was in a setting where I'm forced to listen to it, like at work or a waiting room. But on my time, I have never had the need for radio. I'm not into listening to playlists. I don't even have a single playlist on my computer or phone. Whether I'm on the go or at home, I have albums with me. I find the notion that you can't bring an album you love on the go with you and it is not meant to be on the go ridiculous. I got a nice pair of headphones to shut the world out. In my car? My windows are rolled up and the radio is blasting to shut the world out.

I'm sorry, but I don't need an album to be on a record to make me appreciate it or force me to listen to it in full, I can do that just fine on my own, even if it is on CD or hi-res files. I find the notion that only record is the true medium for folks who really sit back and listen to an album just silly. I've been listening to albums since I was a kid. As the the way I listened to music changed from CD to digital, I still listened to albums. Even on my phone, I have full albums that I can enjoy because I don't want to have to keep switching tracks or create a playlist or click the random button. No, I want an album that I can put on, drive, and listen to from front to back. I don't need a specific medium of music to force me to do that, I can easily put on album from front to back on my own whether I'm at home or in my car. I guess I am not a part of the A.D.D. generation that is easily distracted.

And if an artist doesn't have the ability to deliver a good album and only a track or 2, then that artist should give up writing albums. You can't write a good album, then I will be giving that artist less of my attention for one that can. I find blaming the section of "listeners" that don't really care about music and just go around buying the popular songs that make them feel a part of the cool club to soundtrack their Instagram day as a reason an artist should be allowed to phone it in absolutely ridiculous. If an artist cannot write a good full album, then stick with the radio crowd. If you are gonna write an album, then put the effort in to make it good all the way through. If it is good, it will be loved and listened to. Stop caring about the half ass listeners and catering to those whi only buy the single or who only pay $10 per month to stream everyone's music. I do not believe the album is dead. Artists just have to make a goddamn good album. As for the rest of us, go out and actually support the artists you love by buying that album or shirt or concert ticket.

Death to the single.

Btw, I am not sure if this goes for everyone, but listening to NIN on a phone takes nothing out of the experience, for me personally at least. Intended/unintended or not, doesn't mean you can't have great results even with the means the artist may not have suspected, I assume results vary from person to person. But I find myself enjoying NIN entire albums even in the most crowded of places.

If song or its section is too quiet, i just bring up the volume.

I just hope I didn't come off as someone who'd be lecturing people how to listen to music or something.

I can definitely relate to this as it's also affected me on a subconscious and unintentional level when it came to entertainment in general as well. In hindsight, in spite of how important it is to be open-minded to differing opinions, sometimes you just got to see what works or doesn't work for you and you alone.

It really was no wonder why it lead me to ask questions as to whether or not I liked or followed something just because of the approval and admiration of others, or if I avoided or even just gave up on something just because of the overall rejection and disappointment of others. (It could be a bit of an ego thing for all I know too. I don't mean to speak for others, but that's what I've always felt and thought about it too.)

Granted, I could see why there would be tons of factors to ruin it too, for whatever reason.

In hindsight though, it certainly helped me realize that I end up surprising myself in enjoying things I probably would've enjoyed a long time ago, should I had not have been steered by the opinions of others in any way, shape or form, negative or positive. I figured it would also be a very good thing to be mindful of, even beyond the realm of entertainment.

As for The Hand That Feeds, I still like for what it is as well. Much to my surprise, I have also re-watched the actual music video a lot more than I thought I would.

@elevenism (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=2475) @Prettybrokenspiral (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=911) - I just thought of mentioning the both of you, since we were just talking about this.

Echoplex is still my most favorite song from The Slip, as it's often, if not always my go-to song on The Slip. Demon Seed has also been getting a lot more plays as of late too.


Also Head Down "And this is not my face and this is not my life, and there is not a single thing here I can recognize, this is all a dream and none of you are real".
Thank you for reminding me about this as well. That's what also came to mind when I first listened to Not The Actual Events.

That's exactly what HTDA is for, though. Because that's exactly what HTDA is and sounds like: NIN (TR & AR) + Mariqueen. It wouldn't piss me off if she were to show up sparingly as she has already successfully done in She's Gone Away, that would work fine. Something more along the lines of La Mer could probably work too. But if she's going to be the lead singer and "star of the show," I prefer that remaining under the HTDA moniker. Atticus may be an official member now (and for the record, I'm a fan of his contributions), but NIN is still (and will always be) Trent Reznor. That also means that he does whatever the fuck he wants, though. I love How to Destroy Angels (especially Welcome Oblivion), I just think that if I hear her beautiful voice flowing through music made by Trent & Atticus, it should be given its own unique voice, identity, and title so it's allowed to create its own legacy and impact without having to live up to and fit into NIN's.

Good ol' Boat. One of the best. He drops NIN references now and then. Also a Rocket / Night Marchers / Hot Snakes fan. Good follow, that account.

Despite the audio issues

Ugh, panning the voices HARD left & right made the podcast unlistenable. I had to bust out my Klipsch in-ear headphones to seal out enough background noise to hear the conversation.

Just re-watched the video for Less Than and noticed a bunch of arms pointing downwards. May be a reference to God's arm in The Wretched, or more probably, The Presence, given AV's connections with YZ.

These are throughout the video but most noticeable in the break from about 2:40 onwards.

Apologies if this has been discussed before.

Would it be so bad if Mariqueen sang a little in NIN?
I think it would piss a lot of people off, but I would like it.

If Trent feels like a Nine Inch Nails song actually needs female vocals then I am fine with him choosing Mariqueen or anybody really. It's his project so he can decide what he feels suits NIN.

Ha no. Remember the ďEverythingĒ hoopla? Poor guy scraped itís release because, well, I donít really know why. The online reaction messed with him. If it was really his decision, then fan opinions wouldnít get in the way.

Why is almost everybody talking as if She's Gone Away hadn't already happened? I guess it's a question of her singing lead rather than backing vocals, but still...

Naw, it's not so much that I want her to sing LEAD. I just think it might be cool if it was a little louder and more noticeable. Like, I didn't know she was on She's Gone Away.

yeah you did, because you watched twin peaks :p while the stage "performance" was mock, her vocals have always been in the song (and also credited in the P.C. / liner notes)

Made this playlist on my phone with some of the new songs and some old ones with the Year Zero and life-inside-a-dream- theme and it works great for me. All the tracks even segue each other great without the need of crossfades. Hope you like it.

1- Burning Bright (Field on Fire)
2- The Lovers
3- Less Than
4- Not Anymore
5- Me I'm Not
6- Dear World,
7- The Warning
8- Head Down
9- The Idea of You
10- Another Version of the Truth
11- This Isn't The Place
12- The Line Begins To Blur
13- Beside You In Time
14- Right Where It Belongs

This is a great playlist but I made one change to mine. I replaced the warning with home. Gives the middle section some room to breathe and I think strengthens the narrative. But nice work.

Same here, other than I knew she was on there due to people on ETS discussing it. I can barely make out someone doing her part in that song. Couldíve been some synth effect and I wouldnít have known any different.

I don't know, the vocals are pretty low in the mix and buried in reverb, but I think it's quite discernible they come from a female voice.

Yeah but he put it on a record and then stands by its existence regardless of public fallout like most of Pretty Hate Machine for example, which you can tell he dislikes somewhat but appreciates still as a reference point for where he was in his life. "Everything" is where he was at that point in his life and I can't argue against it. The man puts his feelings in his music and the people shit on it, of course he's gonna be upset when people don't like his feelings because alot of people believe Trent is a very angsty negative dude and can't be positive ever. I'm pretty sure he doesn't hate the song he just hates how people reacted to that side of him and that's understandable.

I feel like people just don't like straight forward upbeat rock NIN. Songs like "Getting Smaller" and "Not So Pretty Now" are polarizing to fans and now "Everything" has joined it. I like all three. Just my opinion.

The drum pattern at the start is kinda similar, but no way is it a sample. Sounds like a different synth, to me.

I mentioned it in my post 6 posts above yours. Subtle backing vocals are fine, but if She's going to be singing lead, I think it should be considered a HTDA track. Apparently they feel the same, because their cover of "Is Your Love Strong Enough?" is credited as HTDA, despite being on a score by "Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross." One might expect it to be listed as "Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, and Mariqueen Maandig Reznor" or "Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (featuring Mariqueen Maandig Reznor)," much like the cover of Immigrant Song that features Karen O on vocals from the same score... but it's not.

I was referring to the percussion sound in the first couple of seconds. It could be a complete coincidence that it sounds the same. Who knows?

Well, as botley said, the pattern is certainly similar, but not the same, and I think it would be hard to get rid of the delay and phasing effects, even with filtering, gating to morph it into Not Anymore.

If we’re including live shows, the best is probably the extended drawn out version of Pinion that goes into Mr. Self Destruct (1994-1995 TDS tour). That shit gave me goosebumps.
